The WWE Draft – Live Updates

wwe draft

This is for ourselves and anyone who can’t watch SmackDown tonight, or any of the other WWE draft coverage. Tonight is going to be a historic night. The New Era will truly begin. The brands (SmackDown and Raw) will be split again. Stephanie McMahon (as commissioner of Raw) must work with her GM Mick Foley, while Shane McMahon (commissioner of SmackDown) has to strategize with his GM Daniel Bryan.

Can’t wait to see how these rosters read tomorrow morning. We’ll be updating throughout the draft. As you can see below, there are the draft rules (courtesy of, and two clearly marked sections for Raw and SmackDown. When Raw makes a pick, we’ll update their section, and ditto for SmackDown. As of right now, our prediction is that SmackDown will come out with the better looking product.

We’ll find out tonight! The events start at 7PM on the WWE Network. SmackDown goes live at 8PM on USA.


  • Raw has the first overall pick
  • Since SmackDown Live is a two-hour show and Raw is three hours, for every two picks SmackDown Live receives, Raw will receive three picks
  • Tag teams count as one pick unless a Commissioner/General Manager specifically only wants one member of the team
  • Six draft picks will be made off the NXT roster
